Assistant for After-School Activities

Arequipa, Peru show on map

Helping children with their homework can bring the satisfaction of making children future a little brighter. You will also have the opportunity to teach English.

Help street kids get a better life!

Our after-school program is located at the heart of the city of Arequipa, a few blocks away from the main square and close to most bus stations and where many woman work selling handcrafts, food, and helping in restaurants/hotels. The project is a secure place for their kids to stay in the afternoons while they are working. The project is run by the Catholic Church, but all kids from any religion are accepted and welcome. They accommodate about 40 kids from 6 to 12 years old.

The kids come from very poor areas and stay every afternoon from 14:00hs to 18:00hs, where they have lunch (for most is their only meal) and start doing their homework. The kids are separated by age and school grade, and each classroom they have a teacher guiding and helping them with Math, Geography, Spanish and History.

Volunteers are welcome to teach English, sports, art and help teacher with their daily tasks. Lesson plans are generally not provided to you by the projects. Peru Volunteer and Travel provides materials, books and lesson ideas to help you with your classes.

Please expect that your project may feel disorganized, understaffed and underfunded. It is for these reasons that volunteers are so desperately needed. Volunteers will have all the support needed from Peru Volunteer and Travel!
